'Exactly what was missing' - Rangers fans rave about senior ace, want Murty to change his role

Rangers returned to action for the first time since the Scottish Cup thrashing by Celtic when they took on Hearts at Ibrox on Sunday – and Graham Dorrans’ performance left fans desperate to see the midfielder used further forward.

Dorrans was deployed in a more withdrawn role in central midfield beside Jason Holt and controlled the tempo of the game as the Ibrox giants tried to force the issue and break the deadlock.

The former Norwich midfielder was thundering into challenges and showing some really nice touches as the Gers put their visitors under serious pressure as they looked to return to second-place in the Scottish Premiership with a win.

Gers fans were pleading with manager Graeme Murty to use the senior ace further forward and get the best out of the former Scotland international – with one fan saying he hasn’t got a “proper chance” playing further back.

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

Dorrans joined the Gers last summer but was forced to miss almost six months of action with an ankle injury and has recently come back into the side after returning to fitness.

The midfielder has made 17 appearances for the Light Blues this season, scoring five times and creating four more goals for his team-mates.
